Get to Know the Types of Housing Before Buying Your Dream House

As an area of shelter and gathering together with family, shelter is a primary human need. Not surprisingly, when choosing a place to live, we have to take many things into account. Plus there are several types of housing in Indonesia.

Developers often provide additional frills such as clusters, residences, to townhouses. These terms may be unfamiliar to those of you looking for your first place to live.

If you decide to buy a house from a developer, be sure to be clear about the types of housing so you can choose according to your requirements. Generally, there are four types of housing that are often offered by developers, namely clusters, residences, and townhouses. To be able to tell the difference, see this article to the end.

Cluster House

Cluster houses are a type of sited residence consisting of tens to hundreds of housing units. Generally, cluster house types have a uniform size and shape, where each house is only separated by a concrete wall without a fence.

There are several characteristics of cluster houses that are the main attraction so that this type of housing is quite a favorite for many families. One of them is a complete facility that can be used together. Generally, cluster residences have green open area facilities, playgrounds, to sports fields.

In addition to complete facilities, cluster housing is often chosen for couples who already have children. This type of residence has limited access so that not just anyone can enter without permission. There is only one visible access (one gate system) with 24-hour surveillance and equipped with CCTV. So, even though the residence is not equipped with a fence, the area is always safe thanks to a good security system.

Residence House

Residential housing is a dwelling that consists of several residences in one area. Generally residences are located in sub-urban or suburban areas so that the environment is still classified as beautiful and free of pollution. You can find residence housing in Jakarta’s supporting areas, such as Depok, Tangerang, Bekasi, and Bogor. The advantage of residence residences is that prices are more affordable than clusters.

Housing Types Townhouses

Other types of housing are townhouses. Compared to clusters and residences, the number of residential units in townhouses is very limited, which is around 10 to 30 units. Townhouses are suitable for those of you who want a quiet, exclusive, and not crowded environment. At first, townhouses were built to meet the living area needs of expatriates. However, at this time many developers are building townhouses in the city center.
